Outsiders may think Idaho’s best-known dish is the potato, but ask most Idahoans to name the state’s signature dish and you’ll hear “finger steaks.” These battered, deep-fried beef strips were invented in the mid-1950s by Milo Bybee at the Torch Lounge in Boise. Though you can order a basket of these crunchy morsels at most dive bars, Lindy’s Steak House has perfected the recipe. The chefs at Lindy’s use top sirloin, rub it with fresh garlic, then dunk it in seasoned flour and drop it in a high-pressure deep-fat fryer until it’s crisp outside but still pink on the inside.
